From the Principal: Have a Wonderful Summer!

June 23, 2021

Dear Parents,

      Thank you for a wonderful year!  I can hardly believe that we were able to bring the children back to school 5 full days socially distanced with only a few short closures.  That is with many thanks to all of you for honestly completing the daily health screening and your children wearing their masks on a daily basis.  For all of these reasons I say thank you.  While this year has been not easy by any means and looked very different than what we were used to, we persevered and made it through.  I hope that next year we are able to work within the guidelines and make things even better for the children.  At this time, I have no answers on what the guidelines, only time will tell.  The kids have learned and grown so much this year!  Thank you for sending them to NDCA and for allowing me to be their Principal, seeing your children grow and thrive has been the highlight of my days.  I can hardly believe that the year is coming to an end. 

This year, for children currently enrolled in NDCA, the summer work will be remote using i-Ready and Freckle, both that they are familiar with using.  These programs meet the children where they are and put the children on a personal learning plan.  This will help if they are behind to move them forward, and show continued growth as opposed to the “summer slump”.  We are asking that the children complete 30 minutes per week in both freckle and i-Ready and complete activities in both Math and ELA. I also encourage all students to read, read and read some more. 

For anyone new to NDCA.  You will not have login information for these programs so we ask that you complete the following:  

  • Go to the school web page notredame-ca.org
  • Click on the Parents and Guardians tab
  • Once there look for the grade your child will be going into in September and click on the link.
  • If you have any additional questions, please call the office. We will post official hours, however the office will be open most Tuesdays and Thursday from 9-11 a.m.

 

I thank you for all of the support that you have shown me throughout this year as Principal.  I look forward to many more with you!

 

Have a wonderful summer!

 

Sincerely,

Jennifer DiLorenzo
